What's leapin' into your cooking pot tonight, Wednesday 2/29/2012?

I'm naming and claiming the topic. Today is Leap Day 2012, a day that occurs only once every 4 years.

I'm tempted to attempt my much vaunted Shrimp and Walnuts with Creamy Sweet Sauce. Stolen (the idea) from my favorite local Chinese restaurant.

actually, it only registers once every four years because humans need to pretend they have a grip on time. what about leap seconds? why is there no mention of that?



lol, i'm just kidding. i was being you.

Well, you just made a brief mention.

I hope this will be construed as the menu topic of the day, as "what are you cooking today?"

What are you cooking tonight Wednesday, February 29th 2012?

I hope I didn't screw up the topic title...

I'm going to cook my Shrimp with Crispy Walnuts in Creamy Sweet Sauce unless my dentist appointment goes badly today, in which case I think I'll order same at my local Chinese restaurant. If I'm not in real pain I'll weigh their ingrediments. For my records, for my own foray into creating and publishing my own recipe for same.

Screw it up? Nah, not possible. Some people like to write "what's for dinner sinner?"....on a Sunday!

There is no way to mess up the daily menu title..... um, there was the time I put the wrong day of the week....
